Hello, my name is Matti and I am 11 years old and I just wanted to know what my name really meant. That's how I found this web site, it's great. I am a girl and I was named after my mom's friend Mathew.

Actually, my name is Matti and I'm a girl. I get a lot of comments on it and - surprisingly - a few mispronunciations (/mɛti/). Since I'm in the US, few people know that it's a boy's name unless I tell them. Which I do voraciously since I think it's funny.
My mom still says that it's a girl's name. But I suspect she just doesn't want anyone to know that she gave me a Finnish boy's name.

One is the current prime minister of Finland, Matti Vanhanen.

And the other one is the lead singer in Hanoi Rock also known as Michael Monroe but he was in fact born as Matti Fagerholm.
